Subaru is going big at this year's 2017 New York International Auto Show with two reveals. As well as the revised 2018 version of the Outback making its debut at the show, the Japanese automaker will also be unveiling the redesigned 2018 Crosstrek, which represents a new interior and exterior design language for the brand.
This redesigned and reengineered 2018 Crosstrek is built on Subaru's new Global Platform, which is designed to offer improved performance, safety, capability and comfort. The Crosstrek is designed to be fun to drive and it looks to combine Subaru's new look with a capable chassis so it's as capable off-road as it is driving in the city.
The new design language is entitled, "Dynamic x Solid," and the all-new 2018 Crosstrek will be the second of the company's vehicles built in the new style. Among the technical wizardry to be found on the new car is Active Torque Vectoring Active, which we first saw on the performance WRX and WRX STI models. The system is designed to reduce understeer so the vehicle stays on the driver's intended cornering vector, and it will now be standard on all three Crosstrek trim levels of base, Premium and Limited.
A revised version of the FB 2.0-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine will power the new Crosstrek, with the powerplant now utilising direct fuel injection and other enhancements for better performance. The 2.0-liter is mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission or an available Lineartronic CVT in base and Premium trims, while the Limited gets the CVT featuring a seven-speed manual mode function with steering wheel paddle shifters as standard.
Also featuring at the show for the first time will be the 2018 version of Subaru's biggest-selling model, the Outback. Along with the all-new Crosstrek, the 2018 Subaru Outback will be arriving in showrooms this summer. The Outback features revised front and rear styling along with a number of significant upgrades intended to make it more comfortable and safer than the 2017 model, and its multimedia capabilities will also be enhanced for the new model year.
